%N Number of consecutive composites beginning with the first, to be added to obtain a power.

%C All powers are squares with the exception of 3^3 for a(2) and 6^9 for a(6). I conjecture these are the only nonsquare powers.

%C a(19) > 10^10. - _Zak Seidov_, Jul 06 2013

%e Considering 1 not to be prime and not to be composite, first composite is 4 which is 2^2. And the sum of the first four composites is 4 + 6 + 8 + 9 = 27 = 3^3.
